- An introduction to microcomputers (vol.0) by Adam Osborne, self
published in 1977
An excellent book - but why do you leave out the other more
technical books by Osborne? Some of them go into great depth
in comparing some of the more bizarre early microcomputer chips
with very similar minis of the time.
The whole Adam Osborne 'microcomputers' series are *still*
valuable books as technical trainers. I used to have the series, but for
some reason have only book 0 left. I wish they would be reissued with a
bent towards the home computer hobbyist as it was. Even just republishing
the old series would probably be a money maker as, no doubt, there are
many who still remember the quality of his books.
If anyone wishes to sell any Osborne titles, especially from the
'microcomputer' series, I'm a buyer.
